CAMERON Diaz and Benicio Del Toro are to star alongside each other in new action comedy Agent: Century 21.

The film follows Mary Kay Curly (Diaz), a recent divorcee who is down on her luck and who agrees to take on an unpleasant task for her boss that gets her kidnapped and tossed into the center of a Mexican drug war.

Adam Hashemi, a well-known Danish commercial and music video director, will make his feature film debut on the project, which is based on a script by Greg Brooker (of Stuart Little fame).

Announcing the on-screen pairing, Guy East and Nigel Sinclair, co-chairmen of distributor Exclusive Media, said: “Agent: Century 21 is an adrenaline-infused comedy that brings together two of the hottest stars in Hollywood. It’s a dream combination, and with our friend Andrew [Lazar] producing the film, it doesn’t get much better than this.”

Diaz will shortly be seen in ensemble comedy What To Expect When You’re Expecting.
